About the Image(s)

Shot with a Canon 5d MKIII with a 50mm f1.4 at 1/200 sec at f14, ISO 200, at Saint-Guilhem-le-Desert, France.

This isolated medieval village is located on the Chemin de Saint-Jacques (Way of St. James) pilgrim route to Santiago de Compostella, Spain. The Abbey dates back to 804. To arrive at the village, until a newer bridge was constructed travelers might have had to cross the nearby Le Pont du Diable (Devil’s Bridge), an 11th century UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Hi Bruce,
I love the contrast in your image.
In an architectural image, it would be best to maintain the verticality of the building even though it appears you had to slightly tilt your camera upwards which results in the impression that the building is slightly tilting backwards. You might also have had the chance to use a wider aperture focused on the building itself. That would have resulted in a more purposeful "out of focus" plant in the foreground, giving more prominence to the building itself.   Posted: 07/10/2024 10:54:19
